    Rhiannon Giddens, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell Make LA Times Best of 2015 List

    Rhiannon Giddens, Emmylou Harris, and Rodney Crowell have made the Los Angeles Times music critic Randy Lewis's list of the Ten Best Albums of 2015.

    Rhiannon Giddens's solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, which has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album, is "a tour de force," writes Lewis. "She can sing anything from Southern blues to Celtic folk and French cabaret with equal aplomb, and is shaping up as a first-rate songwriter as well." The album has been named among the Best Albums of 2015 by Rolling Stone, NPR, and the Sunday Times; the Top 10 Folk Albums and Top 10 Americana Albums according to MOJO; and Best Americana Music per PopMatters.

    Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell's second duo album, The Traveling Kind, is "a gorgeous reflection on life, hard-won wisdom and celebration from two longtime friends and musical collaborators," writes Lewis. The album earned them two Grammy nominations this year: Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song for the title track, which they co-wrote with Cory Chisel. Produced by Joe Henry, the album follows the longtime friends’ Grammy-winning first duet album, 2013’s Old Yellow Moon.
